Swim Lane Flowchart Symbols
Swim lanes are visual elements (parallel lines) which divide the diagram into the lanes for visually distribution the processes, sub-processes of a business process, decisions at these lanes and widely used at Flowcharts, Flow Diagrams and Maps, Process Flow Diagrams and Process Models, Cross-Functional Flowcharts, BPMN and UML diagrams.
Swim Lane Diagrams are one of the most popular way of description complex processes with multiple participants and an essential part of flowcharting. Swim lanes can be arranged horizontally or vertically, depending on the type of Process Flow Diagram, requirements, convenience or personal taste. The lanes are marked with names, each lane is allocated for one person, actor, group, or department and contains the steps performed by it, tasks and sub-processes. The arrows between the lanes represent transmission of information or materials between the subprocesses. So, the Swim Lane Flowchart depicts in details the whole process, the roles, responsibilities and dependencies of each person or group.
The ability to quick and simply create professional-looking Swim Lane Flowcharts and Swim Lane Process Maps is made possible owing the powerful Business Process Diagram and Business Process Mapping solutions from the Business Processes area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Pay please your attention for the Swimlanes and Swimlanes BPMN 1.2 libraries from the Business Process Diagram solution and for the Swim Lanes library from the Business Process Mapping solution. These libraries contain the set of special professionally developed swim lane flowchart symbols - single, multiple, vertical and horizontal lanes which are the perfect basis for your Swim Lane Flowcharts of processes, algorithms and procedures.
Example 1. Swim Lane Flowchart Symbols
The Swimlanes library from the Business Process Diagram solution contains 20 elements of vertical/horizontal pools and lanes, and flows; Swimlanes BPMN 1.2 library from the Business Process Diagram solution contains 8 vector elements; Swim Lanes library from the Business Process Mapping solution contains 12 vector elements.
Example 2. Swimlanes BPMN 1.2 Library Design Elements
Use the corresponding type of predesigned swim lane element according to the type of the diagram you want to draw, dragging it from the suitable library to the document page.
Example 3. Swimlanes BPMN 2.0 Library Design Elements
Additionally you can find and use the swim lane elements included to other ConceptDraw's libraries, such as Cross-Functional Flowcharts library from the Cross-Functional Flowcharts solution, UML Activity library from the Rapid UML solution, Bank UML Activity Diagram library from the ATM UML Diagrams solution, and some others, which are needed for designing the corresponding types of diagrams and flowcharts.
Example 4. Swim Lanes Library Design Elements
Take the benefit from the ConceptDraw's RapidDraw and Action features that allow to concentrate your attention on the diagram content, not on the drawing process. Use the Rapid Draw button on the Shape toolbar to activate the RapidDraw mode and then add each next object using the RapidDraw arrows and choosing new object from the pop-up menu when you bring the mouse cursor over already created object.
The object's Action menu at the object's right top corner offers the set of commands which allow easy modify this object.
Example 5. Applying of ConceptDraw's RapidDraw and Action features
Apply also the Line, Fill, Shadow, Text and Align tools to format your diagram objects to easy make your diagrams, flowcharts and maps accurate, bright, pictorial and attractive.

A Data Flow Diagram (DFD) is a graphical technique which allows effectively model and analyze the information processes and systems. The ability to fast and easy create the DFDs is made possible with Data Flow Diagrams solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. For designing the Data Flow Diagrams are used simple DFD flowchart symbols which are connected each other by arrows depicting the data flow from one step to another.

Drawing an electric circuit plan with all the wiring might seem very complex. If you ever felt afraid to ask how to use electrical and telecom plan software, then it’s time to actually start from altering the templates from the Solution Park. You won’t even notice the moment when you would become an experienced user.
This electrical and telecommunication floor plan plan presents electrical and telecommunication devices located in a country house floor plan. Each electrical or telecom device on this plan is indicated with the particular symbol. Using standard Electrical and Telecommunication symbols makes this floor plan clear for anybody who will be involved into construction process. All the electrical and telecom symbols used in the current floor plan are placed to a legend. This electrical and telecom floor plan can be included as a separate piece into a package of building documentation.

When used in different areas, flowcharts use specific symbols to depict different elements. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM offers libraries of symbols for many areas. One of such libraries is flowchart symbols accounting, which provides symbols for accounting diagrams. Activity-based costing calculates the costs of all products and services based on activities in an organization. A type of accounting flowchart that shows how costs are assigned to products with resources and activities is called Activity-based costing (ABC) flowchart. It can be designed in a digital drawing software such as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
Here is an accounting flowchart template and symbols. These flowchart symbols are applied for making accounting flow charts in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and with its Accounting Flowcharts solution. An accounting flowchart is a specific type of a flow diagram. Practically a number of flowchart-type diagrams commonly utilized to clarify many parts of an accounting department working process. Accounting flowchart assists a process of preparing accounting documentation. It shows who responsible for implementation of each step in the workflow of accounting department.
